Guide for Walk Leaders

Worcester U3A Long Walk Groups

Guide for Walk Leaders

Establish details of the walk for the Long Walks page of the Worcester U3A Website.
These should include, the leader(s); the area of the walk; the meeting point and, if possible, the post code and grid reference. Also include any notes relevant to the walk.

The walk should be between 4.5 and 7 miles long.
Reconnoitre your walk, preferably with a companion.
The meeting point should have sufficient parking.
Advise the nearest point for lunch.
When possible the meeting point should have toilet facilities (parks or pubs are ideal).
If pubs are used for a meeting point, check with the landlord if he can provide lunches and will open before 10.00 to take lunch orders and for walkers to use the facilities.
Arrange a back marker for the day of the walk.
Be at the meeting point on the day of the walk by 09.30 to meet walkers.
A high-vis tabard will be available for the walk leader and back marker.

Send this information by email to the Group Leader who will put it on the ‘Dates for your Diary’ section of the website page. This information should be with the Group Leader at least two weeks before the walk.

The Long Walks Group has a library of walks compiled by walking group members. A list of the walks in the library is available on the Long Walks of the website and clicking on the ‘Library of Walks’ link.
